all I can say is...HA HA!

actually...I don't understand this not being able to drive thing...

Just drive slow and be easy on the gas if it is that bad.

a) He's never driven in the snow
b) It's heavy enough you can't see the lanes on the roads
c) The other high school nut drivers will be getting out at the same time
d) The middle school around the corner will be dismissing at same time and more kids will be picked up than usual (more cars)
e) Traffic is already backing up and the schools haven't released yet

c) The other high school nut drivers will be getting out at the same time Don't run into any of them.
d) The middle school around the corner will be dismissing at same time and more kids will be picked up than usual (more cars) See drive slow comment in previous post
e) Traffic is already backing up and the schools haven't released yet Makes the drive slow comment not so optional

Great. Just found out they dismissed bout 20 minutes ago. Son hasn't called (never does). Now I'm wondering if he decided to drive home. Ex is going to drive by the school and check it out.

My dad made me drive in extremely low vis fog and spin cookies on the snow in my truck before he'd let me drive. I also took winter driver's ed. All those sound like very good reasons.

Me too. I'm calling home but he's not there yet. He never has his phone on unless he's making a call so I can't get hold of him. Gonna have to smack him for not calling me first!

And home (been home a while). We're all snuggled in for the night. Maisy got her frisky on in the snow. It was so cute.

I don't drink plain milk...ever. Can't stand the taste. I do hot chocolate and that's about it. Chocolate cake without milk won't bother me a bit. Son will survive as long as he has chocolate.

Looks like the snow has stopped.

I'm starving. Only had microwave popcorn and granola bar for lunch because I didn't want to drive home in the pouring rain/sleet. Time to go see what I can put together for dinner.

We got no snow in my lil town. Just rain and a drop in temperature. I was watching the news and the State set up a command center here. What a way to make the news. No one ever hears about us and we have a command center for bad weather and snow.
It snowed everywhere else but here.

So, there I am, sound asleep on the couch and my cell rings. It was Poof. Last night, I sent her a text message because I am in that habit with my nieces right now. I didn't think about the fact that she probably doesn't text until after I hit the send button. :/

Forgive me now for being vague and fuzzy...

Her Mom either is out of the ICU or should be out tomorrow (that was the first thing she told me and I really can't get my head around which it was). It looks like about 3 weeks in a rehab unit are the next step. So, things are better, but still not great. Please continue to keep them in your prayers if that is something you do. If not, think happy thoughts and best wishes for her Mom's recovery.
